M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

NON STOP (Amsterdam), 2000

Collection: De Vleeshal Collection, Middelburg (The Netherlands) (Inv. no. VH0249).

In her installations, paintings and applied artworks, Dutch artist Fransje Killaars always plays with space, light and colour. This work is a combination of NON STOP (Innsbruck) from the Vleeshal Middelburg collection and NON STOP (Paris) from the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam collection. The two were merged into a new piece: NON STOP (Amsterdam). The thin nylon fabric makes the work look like a summer pavilion. Its exterior is determined by a vertical architecture of colour. Inside the pavilion visitors can lie down on berths with pillows and blankets, reminiscent of a train compartment, a reference to Killaars’s travels in colourful India and an invitation for visitors to engage each other in intimate conversation. The installation makes us feel sheltered from the outside world, although nothing more than a thin piece of fabric is shielding us from its impact.
